[Bug-wget] [Bug-Wget] Global gitignore

When building the repository sources, a large number of files are
autogenerated and hence are not version controlled in git.
However, all these files pollute the output of commands like `git
status`. The only way around it is to place all the autogenerated
files in a single .gitignore file and share it with the repository

I've compiled a .gitignore that can be used in Wget's repository. This
file ignores all the autogenerated files due to bootstrap, configure,
make and make check.
On top of it, I've also ignored some extra files like tags and
cscope.out which I assume a lot of developers are probably using. I've
attached the file for everyone's convenience here. Maybe we can ship
this file with the sources itself?

P.S.: For those who'd like to ignore some other files based on their
workflow, the correct place to put such files is $GIT_DIR/info/exclude
in the repository.

Thanking You,
Darshit Shah
